Want to see what I'm knitting?

Right now I'm working on a little red cardigan for a friend's baby. I'm making it in a one-year size, even though the baby hasn't arrived yet. In the picture below, you can see the hood (the rectangle at the top) and one arm hole (we're looking at the side view here... the arm stitches are temporarily being held by orange yarn). I'm going to try a little pocket on this project, for collecting goodies or pacifiers or favorite toys.

I recently attended a day-long seminar that involved sitting in a chair for eight hours. I got several inches of this sweater done that day. The seminar was on global economics, so maybe when this baby grows up, she or he will be an economist!

Here's a knitting tip for all of you knitters out there. I keep my center-pull balls of yarn from falling apart by wrapping them in those nylon footies from shoe stores. Clean footies. Never used.

Is it wrong that I want to hear all about the eight-hour econ seminar? I also sometimes think, when I'm working on something, that whatever I'm listening to/watching is getting worked into the piece. So I'm careful about watching scary movies while crocheting baby blankets. I dunno.

PS That footie idea is handy.
